these chic monochrome numeric candles and diffusers from serax were a delight to spot while i was browsing their stand at maison & objet last month, and i was drawn to their subtle, understated looks and style.
created using the finest selection of scents and aromas from grasse – the world-renowned centre of parfum – there are eight different scents in the collection, designed to take you on a voyage of discovery into the different corners of the world.
my favourite scent was probably no. 07, which distils the sweet scent of fig with the enticing bitterness of fresh almonds, but other fragrances in the new collection offer up the honey-citrus tones of succulent mandarin (no. 03), seductive dark vetiver lifted with the sparkling citrus of grapefruit (no. 06), an intoxicating blend of rose, sandalwood and vanilla (no. 04) and the earthy sweetness of patchouli mixed with iris and cedar (no. 08).
what’s your go-to fragrance for the home; do you opt for light & fresh or sultry & seductive, or somewhere in between?
